Student sparks chaos by testing teachers’ engagement rings to see if they’re real: 'Are you kidding me right now?'
A student wreaked havoc among his teachers using a $ 16 device that is said to reveal whether a diamond is real.
Up-and-coming TikTok star DiamondTesterKid uploaded his first video in what is now an eight-part series on September 21.
In the now viral clip, which has been viewed more than 4.9 million times, the teenager uses a Diamond Selector II to test whether one of his teacher's wedding rings is a real diamond or a simulant stone like zirconium. (To be clear - there's nothing wrong with a ring without a diamond! It's just that you probably shouldn't lie to your future fiancée the day you get engaged.)
"You think it's real?" The TikToker asks its unsuspecting teacher.
"Yes of course!" She answers.
"Let me test it," says the teenager, before touching the center stone of the ring with the tip of the Diamond Selector II.
Unfortunately, the tool finds that the stone is not a real diamond, which of course the teacher doesn't seem too excited about.
In another video from DiamondTesterKid that has been viewed more than 9.7 million times, the teenager enters another classroom of his teacher to put her ring to the test.
"Hey hey, Miss T!" he says. "You got married, right?"
After saying yes and confirming that she is wearing her wedding ring, the teen asks her if she thinks it's real.
"I hope so ..." she replies.
Unfortunately for Miss T, the device fixes her ring as a fake. She didn't seem very happy about the experiment in a later phone call to her husband.
"I have this kid in my room who tells me that my ring is not real," she said on the call that was cleverly captured by TikToker. “Are you kidding me right now? Is it real or is it not real? "
Fortunately, not all of the diamond test clips show a loss - in one of the videos a teacher brings out three of her rings and a bracelet, and three of the items are recognized as real diamonds. (One of the rings appears to be a semi-precious stone, like aquamarine, that the tool cannot recognize.)
Still, TikTok users are really shaken by the video series, and many are voicing their concerns about the future of teachers' marriages.
"You the reason they get divorced," wrote one user.
"Why did you expose her husband like that?" Commented another.
"You just ended a marriage !!" said a third.
Regardless of how stressful the videos are, there can still be a silver lining here. According to a TikToker who said she used to work in a jewelry store, tools like the Diamond Selector II can be finicky and "only give accurate results" under certain conditions.
"I'm not saying it doesn't work, it just doesn't give the most accurate results," commented the user. "There is also a certain way to hold the diamond tester."
So we hope that DiamondTesterKid just keeps this device wrong for all of its teachers and their husbands.
